I've been using this subscription service since 2003 and I'm damned tired of it. Big pain in the ass because it does not allow scheduling of anything ahead of time; only cancellations or immediate scans. Currently it seems to think that starting a scan at 9am EST is a convenient time. It expands processing to absorb all resources, including those used by whatever sw I'm using to get some work done ... whether it's scanning or downloading the bazillions of updates. Oh, and when it's downloading an update, there is no interruption or cancellation possible, apart from shutting down the app or machine itself. Criky. Both of my Windows machines are slowed to a crawl whenever it's doing anything. Granted, It's been very good at capturing virii & trojans during this time. I've had only 1 trojan slip through in the past 5 years. Initially, I installed it because it was required in order for me to use one of my client's VPNs back in 2003 and I've held onto it due to inertia. But I think I've had enough. Lately I've been tempted to shut its processes down in the task manager when it takes over with an update when I'm trying to get something done. So, any good recommendations? Thanks!
